by a romney administration. the drone attacks here are controversial because the obama administration has not published standards for how it selects their targets, which have included american citizens. that secretive approach is at odds with a commitment that obama made during his first campaign for the presidency when he advocated the rights of due process for all, even accused terrorists. >> if the government grabs you, then you have the right to at least ask why was i grabbed and say maybe you've got the wrong person. you know, the reason you have that safeguard is because we don't always have the right person. you may think it's barack the bomb thrower, but it might be barack, the guy running for president. >> today there's no public process to determine whether the right people are targeted under the drone program. and drone attacks have increased substantially during obama's first term. in 2008 there were 36 strikes in pakistan, according to new america foundation, which is a rough estimate. by 2010 there were 122. and so far this year there have been 43. in yemen, drones have been
by the obama administration for brokering a ceasefire in gaza, and now the white house is silent on the more -- coupe. middle east expert professor hoover institute senior fellow "wall street journal" as columnist among our guests here tonight. we begin with the president's broad based strategy to conduct our right class warfare against the republican party on the issue of taxes and the fiscal cliff. the white house today released a report from the council of economic advisers. that report claims that if republican lawmakers don't accept the president's fiscal proposals they would be responsible for destroying christmas for the nation's retail sector. the national retail federation is forecasting that holiday sales will grow. if congress does not act on the president's plan to extend tax cuts for the middle-class and jobs in our economy at the most important time of the year for retail stores. as the president uses similar scare tactics to bully republicans into a deal press secretary jay carney today made clear where the president himself simply refuses to compromise. >> there are issues th
for answers from the obama administration, congressmen writing a letter directly to leon panetta, wanting to know why it took so long to send help to benghazi. congressman chaffetz, you wrote a letter. i'm curious if you expect an answer. >> i'm tired of written letters. wide receiver written letter after letter, exercised as much patience as we can. it's passing the election, thanksgiving, and it's time for the administration to step up, do what the president said they're doing, being open and transparent, but they're not. we're not getting the an-wers. >> greta: all right. why don't you just summon secretary of defense panetta to a committee hearing? >> we're getting to the verge of that. darrell issa has been exceptionally patient, but we're getting to the point where we'll issue subpoenas. it's obvious they won't give us the answers we deserve to have. >> greta: what's the justification for being patient? four americans were murdered. and there have been -- stories have been put out there that simply are not believable, the one being the video which is not believable, the administrati
the intelligence community gave her were incorrect and that at no time did she or anyone in the obama administration intend to mislead the american people. the white house worked to reinforce that tuesday. >> ambassador rice has no responsibility for collecting, analyzing and providing intelligence. >> reporter: acting cia director michael morrell joined rice's capitol hill meeting to help her field questions. danielle nottingham cbs 5. >>> president obama is making a public case this week for his approach to avert the "fiscal cliff." he is meeting today and tomorrow with small business owners and middle class families and he will visit a small business in pennsylvania on friday. negotiations with republicans continue behind closed doors. a democratic senator says his side is willing to discuss reform of medicare and medicaid. >> the math just doesn't work anymore. not because the programs are bad but because thank goodness we're living longer. >> republicans are signalling they're open to compromise but so far, they still oppose the president's idea to raise taxes on the wealthy. ins
that the obama administration decimated al qaeda. that's something that rubs these republican senators the wrong way. i will tell you what she told them, i'm told, inside the classified briefing this morning, what she meant was it was the core of al qaeda, that's what the obama administration has decimated. but these republican senators think she's lef the impression it's al qaeda in general. last thing i will tell you i was told she did say to the republican senators behind closed doors she regrets saying what she said because she knows it was simply not right. >> where does this go from here? obviously investigating intelligence officials as well, i imagine? >> yes. as i said, the acting director of the cia also in this room. and senators, republicans and democrats, are not thrilled with the information that they got publicly or privately. but the -- what goes on from here more meetings. she's back here, we believe, this afternoon, tomorrow she has a meeting with one senator, bob corker of tennessee, probably others. she's going to make the rounds and she's going to keep trying to persuade sen
they had going into this. everything that george bush did the obama administration said we'll do the opposite. if george bush led from the front we'll lead from behind. george bush went in on the ground from iraq, we'll go in from the air in libya. george bush used contractors to provide security. we use the libyan guys to provide security in libya. the problem was the libyans weren't up to the job. the administration looked at all these countries. they helped topple dictators, now they were dictators but pro-american dictators and kept peace with israel in place 40 years. now what are you seeing? country after country in chaos or electing anti-american, islamist muslim brotherhood leaders. bill: what you're arguing they took all the decisions and flipped them on their head 180 degree turn. >> yeah. bill: how is that working out. >> not very well but they have gotten away with it so far. you and fox news have been carrying out the call but no other mainstream media is paying attending. they didn't pay attention until it became a sex scandal with david petraeus and everybody paid
, the u.s. economy would suffer big time. the obama administration's economists estimate consumers would spend about $200 billion less next year than they would have otherwise. congress and the administration have only a few more weeks to nail down a deal. but that deal will have to address some tough issues, including entitlement reform. darren gersh explains. >> reporter: the big money in entitlements is in health care, and that means any grand bargain to avoid the fiscal cliff will slice away aone of the nation's most popular programs. >> medicare is clearly in the gunsights. >> reporter: it's possible congress and the president could agree to save $300 to $400 billion from medicare by cutting fees for doctors and hospitals. but analysts worry slashing payments won't make the health care system more efficient. >> this is not really a way to structurally change medicare and if you don't change the underlying incentives, you don't get long-term savings. >> reporter: progressives at the center for american progress say the government could save close to $150 billion by squeezing the pric
in bengha benghazi. this as a cnn/orc new poll shows the obama administration's overall response to that attack does not get high marks. 54% of americans say they are dissatisfied with how the attack was handled. foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty is at the state department this morning. >> hey, christine. the bottom line, as i look through this poll, i think it says americans do not see a cover-up. that's the one thing. but there is a lot of confusion in this poll, i think, in terms of what americans think, you know, happened, didn't happen, don't forget this has been -- it is confusing. and, it has been highly politicized. so when you look at some of the parts of this poll, for example, you know, thinking it could have been prevented, 48%. 42% think it could not have been prevented. and it's very hard, i think, for americans, to figure that out. who knows unless you have the intelligence information, and all of that has not come out yet. the other thing, though, is that americans are really split. 44-44 over how the administration handled it. you know, did they handle
to be a foreign policy achievement for the obama administration. many problems remain in the volatile of the tough neighborhoods. here is ed henry. >> president obama has a lot riding on the outcome in the middle east. violence flaring up weeks before the start of the second term. he was on the phone again today with two leaders he has a complicated relationship with. egyptian president mohammed morsi and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. the president getting netanyahu to agree to the tentative cease-fire with the carrot of additional u.s. funding for iron dome and other missile defense progra programs. >> i have agreed we will fight weapons of terror. >> u.s. and israel knows they send the rockets to hamas through egypt, which is why the president is using more of a stick in the conversation with morsi. today, hillary clinton praising and pushing morsi, member of the muslim brothe brotherhood. >> this is a critical new moment. they are assuming the responsibility of the leadership that made the country corner stone of the regional stability and peace. >> israeli officials are blunter. p
responsible for brokering the deal. i give actually the obama administration a lot more of the responsibility. i wouldn't call it credit for pressuring both israel and the egypt to get hamas to agree to the cease-fire. it is a very limited cease-fire. it won't last. it doesn't change the strategic environment and it clearly gave morsi the view that he would have a free hand domesticly to do what he has just done. melissa: i don't want to let you go without asking you i was struck by pictures exhuming yasser arafat questioning what he did of. what do you think of that? >> i don't think he died of polonium poisoning. only people that used that is soviets. i don't think they killed arafat. i think this is way pinning his death on somebody else. as happens in that part of the world it is not their responsibility but somebody else's. melissa: why now? >> an issue kicking around for quite some time i think circumstances led to it being this time. i don't attribute to any grander plan. i don't think it will fundamentally change the circumstance there is. melissa: ambassador, thanks for coming on. we

. >> there's one federal policy change that said a second term obama administration might push which would be helpful. is there one that comes to my? >> personally, i would like to see, jim alluded to this in a way i hadn't heard before, you know, i'd like to see the conversation around gainful employment extend beyond the career and for-profit colleges to the entire sector. and making it shining a light on more of the outcomes there. and the second part of it is, give me the biggest challenge with the gainful employment regulations as they stand now, we have suggested our own counter mechanism, but not to go into that right now. i think the biggest problem with it is it's an all or nothing access to cash message. so you either clear of our and then have access to the federal loan dollars and so forth, from title iv, which allows you to grow, or you don't clear the bar and you gives you out completely. the challenge with that is the government has competing interests right now. on the one hand, you do want to extend access to lots of populations that haven't had a struggle access to higher
doing it now? the obama administration will have an opportunity to look at these proposals in november and december and hopefully decide to take advantage of them and use them next year. also i am hopeful and will recommend that this not just be administrative action. congress should implement this, too. beyond that, we will have the proper recommendations with regard to other issues of security, jobs, efficiencies, innovation. this is such an important part of our economy in america. if we do not do it in the right way, we will make mistakes. when you legislate an atmosphere of crisis, where you have a mess on your hands, you quite often do not do it very well. yes, we are experiencing some good times in energy diversity now. it seems to me now is the opportunity and a fantastic time of challenge for us to develop an overall, the national energy policy to pull things together and plan for the future and not wait for another crisis. another crisis will come. when you look at the impact of energy throughout the world, what is happening with us and how we are all interrelated, it is obvi
are meeting again. in a sign of the slow pace, senior administration official said president obama and congressional leaders are not expected to reconvene this week. this is so the staff of both sides can continue to organize and work through the differences. and what is not a surprise at all, mr. obama instead will probably hit the road this week to give speeches. >> xwitner is supposed to be coming up with the details. >> aides said mr. obama will hit the road to mobilize public support. just like the last, same speeches over and over. >> you saw warren buffett this morning. >> some interesting points. he had an alternative minimum tax he had been talking about for the really wealthy. >> 30% or something. >> anybody from 1 to $10 million. also talked a little bit about raising the -- >> same thing he's been saying all along. >> he added that when it comes to who should be paying the higher taxes, he wants the threshold to be $500,000. >> and you see steven rattner on on talking about capital gains, deductions and things you've talked about a lot. >> time for the global markets re
they deserve the same legal rights. the obama administration would not defend that law. the house republicans appointed john clement. many of those cases are under appeal and they will surely decide one of those cases this spring host: is there one more likely than the other? guest: that is an inside baseball question. the problem that arose is that elena kagan was the solicitor general when some of those cases were beginning and she mentioned at her confirmation hearings that she had participated in discussions about one of the cases. i think what the court wants to try to do is find a case where she came later and had no involvement. you want nine justices. they don't want age. you could get a split in the would not decide anything. host: she would be one of the key votes to watch? guest: when it is a close vote, every vote is a key vote. in answer to your question, there are several cases and it is not a matter of a good or bad case. one of the deciding issues will be of justice kagan participated. when eight supreme court struck down an act of congress, they almost always hear the appeal.
is what he said. >> i hope that the u.s. administration, that the obama administration can make a change by saying, look, you have to help without any condition. >> can you, final question, can you see that as playing out as a possible solution in the future? >> i think this gaza crisis was a reminder or a wake-up call for the administration. here it is, the israeli conflict is alive and we have to deal with it. when a cease-fire is reached, when the smoke settles and the dust settles, i think the u.s. will go back to a more serious involvement in the process, trying to bring the parties closer together, perhaps advancing negotiations between israel and the moderates and the palestinian authority. >> dan arbell, scholar for middle eastern policy. we appreciate it this morning. thank you. >> thank you. happy thanksgiving. >> same to you, sir. coming up at 6:30 eastern time, we'll be talking to stuart holiday, the head of the meridian international sent they are a works with the state department. >>> the latest on the breaking news with a bus explosion on tel aviv on a main street in tel a
after the financial crisis in the early days of the obama administration. crucially for the sec, she took office right after the exposure of the bernie madoff scandal. and the sec has been struggling to put the pieces together ever since then. take a look at some of the highlights over at the sec. the sec pointing out this morning that they've had more enforcement actions than ever before in the past two years. 735 actions in 2011 and 734 in 2012. and the sec is now engaged in one of the busiest rule-making periods in decades and pointing out that her response to the frash crash included requiring exchanges to create a consolidated audit trail. this is a pretty well rolled out announcement here today. we saw the leak to the "new york times," then the official announcement and then a few minutes ago, the sec put out an e-mail entitled some of the accomplishments under mary shapiro's tenure. also going to hear from a lot of the critics of the sec. some on the left saying she has not gone far enough. the sec has not gone far enough and some on the right saying that dodd/frank and the re
. president obama has bet his administration and the democratic future on this health care law and if it didn't work out well in the next few years it's going to have big impacts on future elections. stuart: and i've got another one. 48% think that any money raised with tax increases will be spent on new government programs. only 38% think it's going to actually reduce the deficit. so, here we've got a debt problem, some would say a crisis, and people are just not confident that we're going to address it, certainly not with new taxes. >> well, that's right. and look, skepticism about politicians is as old an as america, part of our cultural dna. in fact, i was surprised only 4% think this'll spend the money instead of using it as they promise. and one of the other things that we're seeing and i think this is really important in these discussions, if you ask people about across the board spending cuts, what everything is included, everything is on the cable. 65% say that's a good idea. but if you take something off the table and say, cut everything, but the military, support falls to 42%, so a
